Storm

Arrived home from our walk this morning, just in time. Within two minutes of our getting home, the rain started - then the hail started - then the thunder started. Excellent timing!
On a lighter note, the sparrows and starlings are still attempting to eat us out of house and home by spending all the daylight hours chomping through the 'fat-balls'.
Hundreds of starlings descended on us a couple of days ago, ate almost everything in sight and then flew away again. I just love the upside down starling in this picture berating the one on the fat-ball.
It is amazing how many juvenile birds there are at the moment, it must have been a good year for them. This young starling had a less-than-happy look on it's face while waiting for the adult starling - and adult house sparrow to finish eating.
